  •  6.45am Inverness to Edinburgh due 10.15pm
  •  10.33pm Edinburgh to Inverness due 2.15pm
  • 6.53pm Inverness to Edinburgh due 10.26pm
  •  10.51am Inverness to Edinburgh due 2.29pm
  • ScotRail service disruption.

ScotRail is rolling out a new temporary timetable – which means Aberdeen’s last train north will leave at 6pm.

Due to ongoing staffing difficulties, ScotRail has announced a new temporary timetable will come into force on Monday.

ScotRail said it hoped the new timetable will “provide greater certainty and reliability for customers” and reduce last-minute cancellations.

Speaking on this morning’s BBC Radio Scotland Good Morning Scotland programme, David Simpson, ScotRail’s operations director, said: “We have made the difficult decision to reduce service. As pay negotiations with Aslef continue.”

Mr Simpson said there was a shortage of drivers on the network, which had led to a reduction in the numbers of staff available for routes.

He continued: “A temporary timetable means it will be in place for as short a time as possible, but it is dependent on pay talks. The plan is to leave the timetable in place until pay negotiations are concluded.”

He said it was likely the timetable will be in place for “weeks”.
